about

My first go at a children's (and/or otter-lover's) song. Written for a sweet family in New England, I hope it'll bring a little dance and happiness to those who listen. Chords & lyrics below if you'd like to play along.

lyrics

Chords are A, E, D, and...
E 13th sus 4th – a crazy name but easy to play!
Fret the 2nd fret on the G & B strings, all other strings open

* * *

I’m an otter (A)
building my den (E, A)
from a dam by a beaver (E)
like a nest for a hen (A)
bobbing in the water (D)
in the evening sun (E 13th sus 4th)
the otter’s daughter (A, E)
and the otter’s sons (A)

do the things you otter do (D)
and keep a little smile in you (A)
here she comes, mama otter (E)
swims beside her sons and daughter (A)

I'm an otter
pickin' fish bones
crunchin' on a crab
jugglin' stones
we have some dinner
we have some fun
the otter's daughter
and the otter's sons

do the things you otter do
and keep a little smile in you
here she comes--mama otter
swims beside her sons and daughter

I'm an otter
sleek and brown
sunnin' on a rock
runnin' over ground
had a race to the shoreline
and everyone won
the otter's daughter
and the otters sons

bobbing in the water
in the evening sun
the otter's daughter
and the otter's sons
